Project Main Details
If you’ve watched or heard Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary, with its many first-person excerpts read aloud, you have a sense of the style of delivery: honest, conversational, not overly dramatic or showy but warm and full of emotion, paying attention to the language and where emphasis should fall in each sentence, letting the words breath, and making it sound as if the person speaking is across the room or even inside one’s head. Our uppermost goal is to make these voices from the past sound like real people talking to us today.
Because we have over 75 characters to cast for the media we are creating for this museum, we are bundling similar characters. Each role comprises 2-3 characters: more details are below in the sample script.
You must be able to record and deliver professional quality reads. A sample excerpt to record is below. The excerpts are short (most are in the range of 150-300 words), and depending on the number of lines, we are offering $75-150 per role.
If interested, please submit a sample by Friday Sept. 28. 2012-09-24 12:17:44 GMT 2012-09-28 12:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 0 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.

“I did not receive any refreshments, not even a drink of water from rebel hands… nor the least shadow of civilized benevolence. If it was not for our slightly wounded comrades who were able to walk, and scantily supply those with water that were more seriously wounded, and not able to help themselves, the greater part of us would have perished during our three days’ confinement. Captain James Weida.”
Dr. James Fulton, 31 years old, Union Army doctor from Pennsylvania:
Today the people out in the country began to bring in things for the sick and wounded. The Christian Commission also brought in a wagon today and supplied somethings for the comfort of those they could accommodate until such times as they would be supplied through the regular channels. I remained at Gettysburg from the first of July until the 10th of August 1863. I had the patients on the third floor under my charge – being most amputations. I dressed the men myself every day. The stumps all did well under my care and not a single patient died, a fact that was to me quite gratifying. Dr. James Fulton.
Soldier from Pennsylvania, wounded at battle of Gettysburg:
“Should I live to be a hundred years old I will always hold them in grateful remembrance for the kind and loving attention that they gave us while we were under their care and keeping.”
